Experiencing Light 2012
12-13 November 2012
Eindhoven, The Netherlands
EXPERIENCING LIGHT 2012, the International Conference on the Effects of Light on Wellbeing, is an international scientific conference for people interested in the effects of light and light design on human wellbeing. It approaches wellbeing in its broadest sense, including mood, emotions, subjective and objective health, comfort, atmosphere perception, productivity, and performance.
EXPERIENCING LIGHT 2012 follows the successful Experiencing Light conference in 2009, and focuses on the psychological processes related to the perception of and exposure to both natural and electric lighting. The goal is to bring together a multidisciplinary group of researchers and designers working in this domain so they can meet, share experiences, present research, and exchange ideas.
After the conference, the Journal of Environmental Psychology is planning a special issue on the psychology of light and lighting. Authors of the best conference submissions will be invited to submit a full paper for consideration in this issue.
Doctoral Consortium November 11: Prior to the scientific conference, there will be a doctoral consortium targeted specifically at PhD students studying the effects of light and light design on human wellbeing. The aim of the doctoral consortium is to provide an opportunity for a limited number of doctoral students to discuss their current and future research projects within an interdisciplinary panel of doctoral students, under the guidance of distinguished researchers. The admission fee will be a modest €20, for students who also register for the Experiencing Light 2012 conference.
